London Legacy Development Corporation



Ramco manage major Asset Disposal contract for the London Legacy Development Corporation

In 2013 Ramco working in partnership with Bywaters were awarded a unique contract for the management of surplus assets from the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park following the London 2012 Olympic Games.

During 2013 and 2014 assets were both sold commercially and gifted to local community groups, with Ramco and Bywaters taking responsibility for site management, sales, marketing and the gifting process.

The gifting process was enhanced through the development by Ramco of a new website which allowed community groups and organisations to register and then request assets for their own community use. An excellent example of this has been the reuse of the seating from the London Aquatics arena following the completion of the games.

The project continues today and has been a resounding success.

“We have worked with Ramco and Bywaters over the past 18 months on a project that has been unusual in its scope and in its objectives – to maximise reuse and to give items away to community groups. Throughout the project the team has risen to, and met, all of the challenges that we have thrown at them with unwavering professionalism and fortitude. As a result, our work together has delivered to time, to budget, and has even been enjoyable along the way.”

London Legacy Development Corporation

“This has been a hugely challenging but immensely enjoyable experience. Bringing together one of the UK’s leading asset disposal organisations to work in partnership with a leading UK waste management provider has resulted in our providing a truly complete disposal solution for the London Legacy Development Corporation”

Case Study
British Broadcasting Company (BBC)



Ramco sign contract to market and sell BBC video equipment

Following on from ad hoc disposal works for the BBC, Ramco were awarded a contract covering the disposal of technical audio and video equipment and related goods in 2012.

To date this has entailed the marketing and sales of over 600 video cameras and associated peripherals as the BBC undertake the process of moving across to a totally high definition (HD) recording environment.

In order to maximise the value of the equipment, every item was professionally reviewed and tested, and refurbished where necessary to ensure the asset were sold at maximum prices.

This contract continues today, and Ramco are currently working on the pilot for the conversion of the BBC Local radio stations as they move toward virtual broadcasting and away from the traditional turntable and mixing desk environment.



Case Study
MoD - RUBB Shelters



The latest stock to arrive at Ramco were 34 containers of RUBB shelters. To prepare for their arrival a 100 tonne telescopic handler was hired, enabling the containers to be swiftly unloaded. Despite a detailed packing list (from 2004!) a complete inventory check was undertaken to ensure stock accuracy and condition.

The task consists of both used and unused shelters measuring either 20 x 24 metres or 23 x 36 metres, which can be used as workshops; hangars; canteens; accommodation etc. They are now being placed into the market via the Ramco website and several offers have already been received. To the delight of the declaring unit, the entire consignment was collected on time and within Contract KPI’s.

Case Study


In 2012 Ramco were commissioned to undertake the removal of surplus catering equipment from over 500 stores throughout the UK on behalf of a major supermarket chain. The work spanned several months and to minimise disruption, was undertaken on Sunday’s.

The project covered the entire UK and entailed teams of three arriving on site by 8:00am Sunday morning with all the specialist equipment required including stair climbers; pallet jacks and hand tools. Site risk assessments had been undertaken in advance and each team was fully briefed beforehand about the agreed method statement. Due to the scale of the project Ramco would frequently have 10 teams working simultaneously at different locations throughout the UK!

Success was due to good planning; working to timescales and good communication with other contractors working on site, because as soon as we finished removals the new equipment went in!



Case Study



Due to a reorganisation Ramco were asked by Sun HML Engineering Limited to undertake the removal and disposal of surplus assets from their Basingstoke premises. The assets varied from office furniture to workshop equipment and machine tools.  There was an additional challenge which involved the removal of a large vertical carousel and a built in situ engine test bay.

Ramco produced a detailed proposal that included a capability statement; an outline sales and marketing strategy; plans to overcome the logistical issues and a valuation.
Sun HML’s preferred option was our re-sell solution as it meant no costs to Sun plus they received a share of the sales revenue.  Once terms were agreed we set about removing the equipment and placing it into our various sales channels.
By December 2012 we had sold every last asset including the engine test bay!

Case Study



Ramco undertake the removal of MTU propulsion enginesfrom PACSCAT.

PACSCAT was a prototype landing craft designed to transfer wheeled and tracked vehicles; troops or equipment to and from either the mother ship or other landing sites.  She was nearly 30 metres long with a deck area of 125 square metres capable of carrying a 55 tonne payload. This awesome bit of equipment was powered by twin MTU 2720kw 16V-4000 m90 propulsion engines - the sort also found in super yachts!

After months of intensive marketing a customer wishing to buy the main propulsion engines was found and he wanted them quickly! 

So began the project of extracting engines from PACSCAT, a task akin to squeezing a V12 engine into (or rather out of) a Mini... The entire task was planned and project managed by Ramco. 

The project team completed the extraction over a 6 day period using a variety of qualified marine fitters; crane operators and electrical engineers. Finally, a happy customer took delivery on time as promised.
